Title: Multi-aperture optical system for high-resolution imaging

Abstract

Technologies pertaining to a multi-aperture optical imaging system are described herein. The multi-aperture optical system comprises an afocal optical telescope and a plurality of sub-apertures that receive light from the telescope. Each sub-aperture comprises a focusing optic that creates a full-field image onto an individual image sensor that outputs data indicative of an intensity of light received at the sensor. Image processing techniques can be used to combine the sensor outputs for spectral discrimination, to improve dynamic range or to enhance resolution of a scene.
